All recognized students will receive a certificate and have access to lots of fun activities (bouncy houses, video games, basketball, snacks, etc.) on November 16th. More details to come!

TIGER SPOTLIGHT

Mr. Travis Claypool

How long have you been teaching at Stony Point: One and half years

What subject(s) do you teach: Engineering

What do you love about your job: I really love the atmosphere of positivity and the wonderfully bright people I see everyday. I like teaching students new concepts, it feels like giving them a super power. Who knows what they will achieve!?

What are your hobbies: I enjoy making things! The 3D printer is one of my favorite tools. It is a machine that produces a physical object of nearly anything you can imagine. It is fun to challenge myself by learning how to make things using tools and materials I have never worked with before.

Tigers on Time Information

If your student failed the six weeks in a certain course, they have the opportunity to recover the grade. Click on the link below to learn more about the Tigers on Time program and to get the Registration form. Thank you!

If you are picking up your student from school, here's the 411 to make your life easier!

  • Send a signed note with your student indicating what time they will be picked up. Have them bring the note to the front office BEFORE SCHOOL to obtain a pass from class. They'll be waiting for you in the office when you arrive.
  • Car traffic is not allowed while the buses are out front. Pick up before 3:55 pm.
  • ONLY those individuals listed on your student's file, with photo ID, will be permitted to sign them out of school. Phone calls and email requests will not be accepted. Prepare now by coming in person with photo ID to add authorized adults to pick up your student. See Mrs. Arzola or Mrs. Gamboa to add authorized adults.
  • If your student is driving, then still send a note but be specific in stating that you give them "permission to drive themselves off campus". List your phone number so that we can call you to verify. Have them come by the office before school for a pass.

IB Students, stay in the loop.

IB 11th and 12th grade students are reminded to please check your email and ManageBac on a daily basis. This is the primary source of IB news from your IB Coordinator. Topics vary from IB exam registration updates to CAS opportunities and program activity announcements. Stay connected, so you don't miss a deadline.
